I, for one, am thrilled to be a part of a community that understands the importance of America’s public land and is willing to fight to keep this shared resource intact. Hunters and anglers have historically been very willing stewards of the overall well-being of our lands and wildlife.
That’s why when Senator Mike Lee of Utah announced on Twitter his plan to introduce a trio of bills into Congress that would redefine how we use public lands, our group stood up and took notice. Specifically the following statement on June 29, “…our long-term goal must be the transfer of federal lands to the states.”
Brian McElrea of Get Hushin almost immediately sent me a text suggesting a roundtable discussion of like-minded hunters to talk through our concerns and general outrage. A few weeks later I was joined by Brian, Casey Butler of Get Hushin, Sam Soholt and Ben “Shed Crazy” Dettamanti for episode No. 23, which is a great expression of how we all feel about these lands. Take a listen to our discussion held on the Public Land Bus and let us know what you think. Hopefully we can all keep having this most important conversation. Enjoy.
